Operations Research in Everyday Life

Whoever believes that Operations Research is only something for mathematicians is wrong. We encounter applied mathematics in the form of OR every day…

Why OPTANO Modeling?

What makes OPTANO Modeling so special? What advantages does this modeling system have to offer? And what exactly is modeling?

Stochastic optimization – the universal solution?

An ideal planning instrument to guard against uncertainty? Stochastic optimization – the final step towards optimum planning…

Scenario generation – the way to achieve optimum planning

For the future, only one thing is certain: Things never turn out as planned – unless you are prepared…

The OPTANO Story – how it all began…

OPTANO is our successful (platform) solution -finally enabling us to offer our customers all those cool features! This is how it all began…..

Systems of Production Planning (Cos we dig ’em!)

When it comes to the topic of software systems for production planning, things can become confusing – one abbreviation after another. What does they all mean and how does they all connect?

Production planning with priority scheduling rules

Acheiving KPIs on production planning with priority scheduling rules? Or do you get better results with mathematical optimization?

Sparsity – variables like stars in the night sky

Sparsely populated matrices (sparsity) are handled differently by mathematical programing languages. OPTANO Modeling does this really well.
